I liked the characters and acting. The movie caused me to reflect on my own beliefs. I liked putting my own interpretation on the events of the movie. It didn't take long to see that the setting was in Utah. i grew up there and love the scenery and the culture of the area. I related to the grandmother the most. The family values and feelings of closeness and caring in the family were inspiring to me. I could see the reflection of many biblical teachings in the script of the movie. Some themes that stood out most were: "what greater love can be shown than when one gives up their own life for a friend." "Unconditional love overcomes many problems." Forgiveness and repentance are basic principles of Christ like living. "Faith precedes the Miracle."
